Russia with new NATO threat

Russia’s former president and deputy head of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, warns NATO against approaching the Crimean peninsula.

– For us, Crimea is part of Russia. And that means forever. “Any attempt to” intervene “in Crimea is a declaration of war against our country, he said in an interview with the state-controlled aviation Argumemty in Fakty, according to Reuters.

He continues:

– And if this is done by a NATO country, it will trigger a conflict with the whole alliance: a third world war. A complete disaster.

Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula, which belonged to Ukraine, in 2014.

Earlier Monday night, Medvedev also warned Finland and Sweden that they could have an Iskander missile system on their doorstep if they become members of the defense alliance.

The Iskander system can be equipped with nuclear weapons.

Russia has repeatedly threatened the West – and NATO – that the war in Ukraine could quickly develop into a third world war. In late April, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also warned that there was a “real danger” of World War III.
